Prayer for a Normal Day

Prayer for a Normal Day
 by M. Iron
Normal day,
let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you,
bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may,
for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world, your return.
 
Just sharing and storing this for future reference.

A prayer for my \"new normal\" which I am in the midst of co-creating. The line that says, \" Let me not pass by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow...\" resonates for me. Learning how to honor and BE with what is... Your writing feels very calming and healing and I hope you will continue to share. Love, Joanie
